She studies the health implications of air pollution and climate change, from local to global scales. She has previously worked at the U.S. EPA, U.S. State Department, U.S. Chemical Safety Board, and has served as a consultant to the World Health Organization, World Bank, United Nations Environment Program, and others.
HAQAST Project: Using satellite NO2 observations for public health surveillance and environmental policy planning at global, national, and urban scales
Susan’s team will work to meet stakeholder needs for tracking NO2 concentrations and disease burdens and NOx emissions at multiple spatial scales: global, national, and urban. As part of this objective, her team will work directly with end users to apply the new datasets for environmental and public health surveillance, as well as environmental policy planning.
Susan’s team will create three types of satellite-based NO2 products that have been requested by collaborators for use in environmental and public health surveillance and public policy planning:
- Annual average high-resolution surface NO2 concentrations
- Global, national, and urban burdens of NO2 on pediatric asthma incidence
- NOx emissions for cities worldwide
